The term "so what" is a reference to a hashtag appearing on Palestinian social media as a slogan used to encourage Palestinians to continue rioting, throwing rocks and using violence against Israelis. "#so_what" is a Palestinian response that makes light of Israel's alleged crimes, showing that Palestinians don't care. It also implies that no matter what Israel does, the Palestinians will continue not to care, and they will continue to riot, throw rocks, carry out stabbing attacks etc. The words refer to a video that went viral, showing an elderly Palestinian man arguing with Israeli soldiers. A soldier points to rioting Palestinians, saying: "They're throwing rocks at us." The old man replies: "So what, let them throw rocks."

Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi: “The Palestinian by nature and ‎education feels a sense of belonging to the land and the homeland. Listen, my son is ‎two years and ten months old. Yesterday, he sang to his mother: ‘Escort the Martyr to ‎his wedding.’ He doesn’t know the meaning of this song (i.e., the Islamic belief that ‎Martyrs marry 72 Virgins in Paradise). Today his mother told me that he sang: ‘Daddy, ‎buy me a machine gun and a rifle, so that I will defeat Israel and the Zionists.’ A boy who ‎is not yet three! A Palestinian grows up with a feeling of belonging to the land, the ‎homeland, and the people.‎"

“President Mahmoud Abbas received yesterday [Sept. 3, 2015] at the presidential headquarters in Ramallah, the family of Martyr Muhammad Al-Atrash, who was killed by the Israeli occupation forces at the Tapuach junction, south of Nablus, and the family of youth Muhammad Al-Tamimi, whom the Israeli occupation forces attacked and tried to arrest in the village of Nabi Saleh, west of Ramallah. The president offered his condolences to the Martyr’s (Shahid) family and stressed that these recurring crimes against the Palestinian people will not go unpunished…
During the reception for the family of the child Muhammad Al-Tamimi, the president praised the courage of the Al-Tamimi family and the way it faces the tyranny of the occupation and the attacks of its soldiers. In addition, he stressed that this proves the extent of the devotion of the Palestinian people to its land.
The president stressed that peaceful popular resistance (reference to rock throwing –Ed.) against the occupier is a powerful weapon in the hands of the Palestinian people, which exposes the falsity of the occupation, and shows to the whole world its barbarity, and the right of our people to self-definition, and to the establishment of an independent state like the rest of the peoples of the world.”

"See the [Al-Aqsa Martyrs’) Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) who set up ambushes
The Al-Aqsa Martyrs emerged with rifles
He wore a vest, bade farewell and returned with booty: a machine gun and a cannon
He overcame his wounds
I saw the Brigades' member when he left
A machine gun and a rifle adorned his clothes
May he stay young
The Brigades, the Brigades
The Brigades’ hawk with the keffiyeh – who else has his stature?‎
See how the follower of Yasser [Arafat] reacts when he raises his weapon
Brigades, [your] snipers vowed to hit the target with the first shot
The [Brigades'] bombing made a loud noise
The Brigades set out on a mission and waited for the signal
Tell those who were not there: We laid mines in the orchard
O my land, be strong and tremble from the Al-Aqsa rockets. Be proud
We defied the [Israeli] drone and retaliated against the [air] strike."

Fatah: Terrorist involved in attacks that killed Israelis who also murdered a Palestinian "collaborator" "is a wonderful example for the children of Palestine" 
Source: Facebook, Fatah - The Main Page, Feb. 19, 2015
     “The hero of the famous Ein Arik operation (i.e., terror attack), the heroic Martyr (Shahid) prisoner Shadi Said Al-Saaideh… Shadi is a wonderful example for the children of Palestine, its youth and heroes of Palestine. He was born from the womb of Palestinian suffering on March 8, 1981 in a diaspora refugee camp in Jordan, and returned to the Gaza Strip after the signing of the Oslo Accords… With the start of the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., the PA terror campaign 2000-2005) he joined Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.
The famous Ein Arik operation:
On February 19, 2002, he [Al-Saaideh] drew his weapon in defense of his homeland and his nation. He went towards the Ein Arik military checkpoint, near the village of Ein Arik, west of Ramallah, together with one of his comrades in the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, and carried out a glorious operation (i.e., terror attack) which will continue to shine in the books of the resistance and the self-sacrificing operations (Fida'i).
Shadi, the hero of the famous Ein Arik operation – that extraordinary self-sacrificing operation which shocked the Israeli security establishment and rocked the occupation to its very foundations. For he shot at Israeli soldiers gathered at the Ein Arik military checkpoint, killing 8 soldiers and wounding others, before he and his friend succeeded in retreating.”
